Overview

Birds in the Garden and How to Attract them was first published in 1939. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This reprint of Birds in the Garden is published by the University of Minnesota Press in answer to a widespread demand for a book of this type—a complete and practical guide for nature lovers who want to enjoy the useful and charming companionship of birds around their homes.

Lavishly illustrated with 16 full-page color portraits from Thomas S. Roberts' noted Bird Portraits in Color, which in now out of print. These reproductions of paintings by some of America's foremost nature artists, Walter Alois Weber, W.J. Breckenridge, and the late, great Allan Brooks, are among the finest in existence. They depict 104 different birds of 48 species in all their brilliant natural color and plumage.

Also included are 32 pages of black-and-white photographs with 81 scenes of birds at home, at work, and at play—instructive as well as amusing when combined with Miss McKenny's gay prose.

For the serious garden planner, there are five pages of diagrams: planting plans for bird sanctuaries in town and country, bird homes, and feeding devices.

Birds in the Garden was first published in 1939 by Reynal & Hitchcock, Inc., and has been out of print for some years.
